Overview

If you’re looking to start a career in coding, but don’t know where to begin, this might be for you. This course is aimed at absolute beginners that have never done any coding before and are unsure of which programming language to focus on. The course is structured to allow you to choose a specific programming language to learn and ultimately a career path to choose. As an example, you have the opportunity to learn coding to build websites, analyse data, develop artificial intelligence, create databases, and build games, plus much more.

The languages to choose from include SQL, Python, JavaScript, Java, Bash/Shell, HTML, CSS, Ruby, R, C++ (pronounced “C Plus Plus”), and C# (Pronounced “C Sharp”).

Early on in the course, you’ll learn what coding is, what certain types of languages are used for, and the types of careers available through learning those languages. The focus then shifts to you. At this point, you’re asked a series of questions to help determine the best direction in the course for you. The answers you give effectively help to offer suggestions on the pace of the course for you, and the programming language to learn.

Description

At any point in time, you can switch direction by choosing a different language to learn. You may find that you start off learning to code with the purpose of analysing data, only to find out that you want to develop websites instead, which may require you to shift to a different language. Another feature of the course is that you’re not confined to learning just one language.

How does this course work?

The course is comprised of two main parts, which are self-paced. Part one covers foundational learning as described above. Part two is effectively a second course that is geared toward gaining a Microsoft certification. The language you choose to study in part one, will determine which Microsoft certification course you will take in part two.

The Microsoft certification you’ll gain is called the Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA). You will choose one MTA certification from the list below to work toward for this course:

  • MTA: Introduction to Programming Using Python
  • MTA: Introduction to Programming Using Java
  • MTA: Introduction to Programming Using JavaScript
  • MTA: Introduction to Programming Using HTML and CSS
  • MTA: HTML5 Application Development Fundamentals
  • MTA: Software Development Fundamentals
  • MTA: Database Fundamentals (SQL)

What will I learn from this course?

By the end of part one of this course, you’ll be able to understand programming, write basic code, grasp programming concepts, think like a programmer, understand the tools in coding, have a better idea of careers available in coding, and gain practical experience by creating portfolio-worthy projects. In part one, you’ll be guided through each step. You’ll learn the right thing at the right time. By the time you reach part two of the course, you’ll have a clearer understanding of what certification you want to work towards.

How long will it take me to complete part 2 of this course?

Part 2 of this course comprises of around 35 hours of video tutorials (where applicable), as well as 25+ hours of live practice lab material; and 50+ hours of practice test material. How soon you can complete the course is dependent on several factors such as the amount of time you can dedicate to the course each week, and how quickly you absorb information. Learners can complete a course within this bundle from anywhere between 1-6 hours. Revision for each exam will take a minimum of 2 weeks. We recommend you spend at least 9 hours on the course per week to be able to finish it within 3 and a half months. You will have full access to the course material and resources for 12 months and must take your exams within this period.

Who is this course for?

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
